Teen Sensation Shiya Ozgul Ready For October 4th Debut
By Gianluca (Rio) Di Caro
London – Friday, 27th September 2013
London based Turkish teen sensation Shiya Ozgul is set to make his professional debut, on the Dave Murphy, Acourtier Events promoted NIGHT OF CHAMPIONS extravaganza at York Hall in Bethnal Green, London on Friday 4thOctober.
Just nineteen years of age, Shiya has already fought competitively over eighty times as an amateur, during which he represented his country in international competition on numerous occasions.
The highlight of his stellar amateur career was being crowned Junior Champion in his homeland.
Trained at the TRAD TKO Gym in Canning Town, by former Commonwealth Lightweight Champion Mo Hussein,young Shiya has proved to be quite a sensation, with his superb performances in sparring with the far more experienced pros there, even against some of the top prospects.
Shiya possesses a style more suited to the professional game, so in some ways it comes as no surprise that rather than compete in his adoptive Country’s amateur competitions, Shiya has chosen to go the pro route, even at such a tender age.
Following an earlier training session, with the aforementioned Mo Hussein, Shiya spoke briefly about his upcoming debut.
“I am looking forward to fighting on October 4th.
I should have debut already, but the fight was cancelled, I was ready then and I‘m more ready now.
I liked fighting as amateur, but I fight like pro, my style is more pro, I want to fight pro.
I have best trainer, Mo Hussein, he was a Champion, he knows what it takes to win.
I’ve best training and sparring, have sparred with Erick (former English Light Middleweight Champion Erick ‘The Eagle’ Ochieng) and Festim (Lama).
Sparred Billy Joe (British & Commonwealth Middleweight Champion Billy Joe Saunders) here, there’s always good sparring here.”
Mo Hussein then added, “He’s had some very good sparring to prepare for this fight, he’s also been sparring with his brother (Onder Ozgul), also sparred my son Eddie (Ediz Hussein) and loads of different lads here at the TRAD TKO.”
With a cheeky smile emblazoned across his face, Shiya finished with a flourish, saying, “ My fans they want a knockout, I want to give them what they want.”
